Tahoe Daily Tribune

Analysis of the Community Health Needs Assessment indicated that substance abuse, limited health care access and mental health are the top three medical issues in the South Shore, according to a presentation by Barton Health’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Clint Purvance.

Barton Memorial Hospital posted the assessment online in September 2012 as a way to identify health gaps throughout South Lake Tahoe and portions of El Dorado and Douglas counties.
